The Day-Glo delights of India's Bollywood musicals collide with the crossed-love conventions of Hollywood romantic comedies in The Guru. Jimi Mistry, a young Indian named Ramu who wants to live the American dream and become famous, moves to New York and finds only menial work in restaurants. But when he mistakenly gets cast in a skin flick, he meets a sweet and thoughtful porn star (Heather Graham) whose philosophical mix of sex and spirituality come in handy when Ramu has to pretend to be a swami for an upper-crust birthday party. The birthday girl (Marisa Tomei) seizes upon Ramu's cribbed aphorisms and leads Ramu into a career as a sex guru. The Guru's uneven script squanders much of its comic potential, but the stars have charm to burn--and when the movie launches into its glorious musical numbers, it enters a realm of delirious glee.

A Tasty Mistake

I once made an overseas call to my son while I was serving in a warzone in the middle east. At the time he thought I was performing my duties in Virginia as my wife and I didn't want him to have undue anxieties over where I actually was.

On a particularly tough day, I called home to check in, and my young son actually answered the phone. It was a Saturday morning and he had climbed into my bed back home and was watching cartoons drinking some sort of concoction of cookies with milk. He mentioned to me that the cookies had melted into the milk, but actually tasted very good...He called it a tastymistake...
